Commune (2005) Documentary

Commune (2005) - Written and directed by Jonathan Berman this was an interesting film about the hippie started Black Bear ranch in the wilderness of Northern California. Started loosely in 1968 the film uses old footage and present day interviews to tell the story of the ranch and those who made it happen. Founded on the a commune with the motto "free land for free people." The Ranch survives today as a trust so it can never be sold and developed. It has a famous actor in Peter Coyote as a former member. Very interesting story showing how an idea can become something even without much planning but how ideals are not all you need for a sustainable life.
Rating (7.8)
